related to Tibetan refugees.The meeting with Mr Eric Schwartz,
Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration,
took place at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department on
Wednesday, reported the Press Trust of India.”My brief
is refugees, among other humanitarian issues. The United States
Government, provides considerable support and assistance through
international organisations. “For Tibetan refugees, whose
circumstances in the region are increasingly difficult. I expect that
that issue will occupy much of our discussion,” Mr Schwartz told
